A Christmas Animal

Afternoon All
We have had another nice day here in Peterboro, not that I have seen the outside world for the past few days. Not that I am complaining either, I am having far too much fun playing. This truly is my kind of holiday, non stop crafting, how much better than that can it get lol.
I have even managed to fit in making a couple of Christmas cards to enter into the challenge over at 52(Christmas) Card Throwdown where they have been asking for cards featuring Christmas Animals.
I didn’t have my bits box with me so I have actually had to stamp something out!!
I had a rummage through the Training room here at SirStampalot and came across this lovely old Penny Black 3539F Snow Hut.
I have coloured him in using my distress inks and after cutting him out I added some white liquid applique and glitter.
The circular starry background was also in the drawer and is by Hero Arts (sorry no code) I have stamped and embossed it using one of the new Frantage Embossing Enamel powders Aged Aqua.
The background paper is by KaiserCraft and I have stamped some Tilda Snowflakes around the edge using Stormy Sky distress inks.
I also made one using the Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.
I added a bit of bling, a hand stitched border and a tiny Woodware Greeting.
I would also like to enter it into the challenge at ABC Christmas challenges where F is for Furry or Feathered friends. Do you think prickles will count?
Better get back to play, the clock is ticking on my playtime, I will be back to reality in a very short while.
I have a class here in a couple of hours so I had better get organised before they start to arrive.
